What to do from your campsite in the Ardeche?

Try your hand at water activities.

The natural and cultural heritage of the Ardeche makes it an ideal holiday destination. A great way to explore the gorges of the Ardeche is go canoeing, kayaking, canyoning or hydrospeeding. There are several routes along the gorges. All of them will allow you to enjoy an adventure packed day and a chance to discover its beautiful landscapes whilst picnicking on the small beaches along the banks. Should you wish to take home some lasting souvenirs some canoe rental companies even have professional photographers on hand at various points along the route to capture your unforgettable day.

Combine outdoor sports and fun

Other alternatives: go hiking or cycling. Follow one of the well-marked paths you will find throughout the Ardeche, or head for a visit to the Monts d'Ardeche Natural Park before heading back to the campsite in the afternoon for a well-deserved dip in the swimming pool. For the more avid walker or keen cyclist great cross-country trails can be found in the Monts d'Ardeche Natural Park. Another idea to spend the day is explore Mont Gerbier, in the Massif Central. Here begins the Loire river, France's longest river.

Explore the famous prehistoric caves

Perhaps even more breathtaking is the underground world of the Ardeche. Young and old alike can admire the prehistoric galleries of the Grand Site d'Orgnac, as well as the reconstruction of the Grotte Chauvet. It is the oldest decorated cave in the world, with frescoes dating back 36,000 years. At the site children can take part in fun activities to learn about art and prehistory.

Discover a region with a rich heritage

Booking a campsite in the Ardeche also means being able to visit some of the atypical villages labelled "Villages de caractère" or those on the most beautiful villages list "Plus beaux villages de France". Vogüé, is one such village set on a cliff with breathtaking views. Spend time on its beach by the river and visit its castle. Then there is Banne, a medieval village with its 16th century castle ruins. And Vallon Pont d'Arc, Balazuc, Saint-Martin-d'Ardèche or Tournon-sur-Rhône not far from Valence are also well worth a visit.
